I'd certainly be disappointed if the plans don't provide a new home for the mix of colombian and other latin american businesses in the E&C somewhere nearby.
But I don't have a recollection of it as a bustling community shopping centre with independent traders when I worked nearby fifteen years ago. I do remember the experience that was the DHSS HQ staff canteen in the space now occupied by the bingo club, when I was once taken there for lunch "for the atmosphere". It was mass catering on a Butlins scale.
Crap, overpriced, exploitative, rubbish (did I say that already?) coffee served by faceless people in charmless surroundings. It really is the McDonalds of the coffee world. The one on Clink Street is a tragedy.
